I know my day-plan from the beginning
You have quite a lot going on. Piano, podcast, dxbfirst.com, how do you manage your time?
I know my day-plan from the beginning, having music as my passion, I always have time to learn and keep practicing on my piano or guitar. Having most of my gigs in the evening I try to get some rest during the morning time, then go to the pool, play with my cats, go for yoga, then go to the office for a few hours where we do our daily show which allows me to spend some time on keys, which not only is the practice but builds my confidence in myself. I'm trying to be productive every day and I love to come up with something new.
Dubai is full of opportunities in any field you are in and having so much to explore and people coming from different countries to visit this place is always coming up with new opportunities for learning and earning at the same time.
